Taking Retreat Practice Home 2011

by Peter Carlson on November 6, 2011

On this last night of the retreat, Peter provided several suggestions for continuing the practice of awakening after the retreat ends.  The value of daily samadhi practice was emphasized as the foundation from which all insights and spiritual progress derives.  During the discussion, yogis offered different ways of mindfully knowing the intrusive feelings that precipitate the emergence of a hindrance.  Recognizing the reality of the three characteristics, impermanence, the dissatisfaction resulting from craving and clinging and the interdependence of life was also emphasized as a practical way to understand life’s challenges.
